of israel. let me share with you when -- one wuote -- in the end, if nothing works, the president will use military power against iran. i am sure of it. that is an interview with shimon peres, the discussion of u.s.- israeli relations and the situation in iran. that is available online as well. let's go back to your calls on the issue of congress being bypassed to raise the debt limit. the hill newspaper, a letter written by senate democrats -- they sent a letter to the president saying at if republicans in congress threatened to shut down the federal government, the president should invoke section 4 of the 14th amendment and raise the debt ceiling by himself sean joins us from scotch plains, new jersey. caller: hello, it is john. the president can invoke the 14th amendment. there is a thing in 1941, 3102 puts the trigger on the 14th amendment. the president has it within his ability and right to do such, but additionally, under george w. bush, he invoked, he signed into law a presidential directive number 20, and there's a section in their that also assists, the helping out for making sur
questions about his past statements and positions, especially about israel and iran. at times, hagel seemed to struggle to answer some of those tough questions and other times he gave answers he later had to clarify. let's go to our chief white house correspondent jessica yellin. jessica, it was a tough, tough day for chuck hagel? >> reporter: so far it has been, wolf. chuck was battered by republicans, forcing some stumbles and bruising. so far, no knockout blow but the day of questioning is not over yet. former senator chuck hagel sat at the table alone fielding hostile questions, including one-time close friend, john mccain. >> i want to know if you were right or wrong. that's a direct question. i expect a direct answer. >> i'm not going to give you a yes or no answer on a lot of things. >> reporter: that exchange centered on hagel's past opposition to the iraq surnl, a surge that mccain championed. >> no one individual vote, no one individual quote, no one individual statement defines me, my beliefs or my record. we must use all our tools of american power to protect our citizens and ou
israel or other things we are better able to effect that and negate if we are participating. and then if we cease to pay the dues and so forth to take a different attitude than we see we sort of lose the opportunity to protect our friends which we want to have the are getting close to the line that would be very damaging if there were any effort to take israel for instance or any other country, if there is any effort to try to invoke other power that is the kind of unilateral action that we would feel very, very strongly against it and see it as extremely counterproductive. my hope is that, you know, there were just elections yesterday. we don't know what kind of government will be formed or where they will go, but my prayer is that perhaps this can be a moment where we can renew some kind of effort to get the parties into a discussion to have a different track than we have been on over the course of the last couple of years. and i would like to reserve all of the capacity to be able to do that, so i'm just going to stop with what i've said, but unilateral efforts are not he
. and it has to do with there ran and the nuclear threat to israel. and the position germany was taking relative to that end i was questioning where they might be should there be a real threat or attack. of course you know that's not what we would -- the public would want us to do, but he said given the holocaust we have no choice. to be fair. we cannot stand by and let another holocaust he plays. so those decades of remorse until over the holocaust still dictates policy relative to support for israel, even though the public now decades on says vitamin e to do to do that again? and do we want to get mixed up and not? so that's kind of a unique dynamic that exists in that regard. but it's somewhat of a tenuous relationship. i spent a lot of time with the israeli ambassador, who spent a lot of time at the germans relative to german policy towards israel and a whole number of ways. so anything short of direct threat or attack on israel, dispenses favors we wish we could get this resolved and we wish israel would be much more flex will relative to the west bank and relative to the palestini
